Group acquires five Fylde nurseries

Kids Planet Day Nurseries has acquired five sites on The Fylde.

The newly acquired nurseries were previously part of the Happy Days group and include Poulton Nursery and Forest School in Poulton-le-Fylde, Victoria Hospital Nursery for NHS employees in Blackpool, Kidspace and The Learning Lodge in Thornton-Cleveleys, and Ansdell Nursery in Lytham St Annes.

The deal brings the Cheshire-based group's portfolio to 120 nurseries across the UK.

Clare Roberts, CEO of Kids Planet said: “It is a pleasure to welcome this group of five into the Kids Planet family.

"They are well-established settings, delivering quality childcare across several catchments on the Fylde, and present an excellent fit with our existing presence in the region. We are really excited to support these nurseries and watch them flourish as part of the Kids Planet group.”
